In my work I toy with the thinnest lines set between reality and a sense of the unreal. Through to the admixture, I further adjust to a reality punctured, a more surreal placement of life, lying just beneath a surface. Scenes in their randomness, the moments underneath--the subject is one not detracting from reality, but only serving to punctuate the delineation away from reality, towards the essence. Black and white continues to be my mainstay, its qualities serving to enhance a stripping, formed into the gray exoskeleton of color. Emerging on the photographs comes a grayish grit. The photographs come into recognition; appealing, seductive half-dreams, yet retain all the transitory vulnerability of humans dazed in their reality.
